The electronic structure of the nido-2,3-R2-2,3-dicarbahexaborane (R2C2B4H6 where R is C2H5) and closo-1,2-dicarbadodecaborane (C2B10H12) have been studied by photoemission spectroscopy (PES). Photoemission spectra for condensed nido-2,3-diethyl-2,3-dicarbahexaborane(8) ((C2H5)2C2B4H6) exhibited features in good agreement with molecular orbitals assigned by modified neglect of differential overlap (MNDO) semiempirical theoretical calculations. Similar agreement can be demonstrated for the closo-1,2-dicarbadodecaborane.
